I don't know if it would be a good thing for a team to have both of their drivers on the same strategy.
It could get hairy.
I said after Bahrain, Hamilton laid down the law and basically demonstrated that even on better tires, Rosberg was not going to get by. Give Lewis the softer tires at the end, and I think Rosberg would be toast if he was in fact ahead.
I have to give Nico credit for the intensity of his effort to be WDC this year.
This may be the best chance he will ever have in his career and he is giving it his all....and then some.
However, LH is one of the greatest drivers of all time, and NR is not.
I would agree with the hat tip for Vettel. he may be on the way to reclaiming RB as his own. It will be great to see if Ricciardo can respond, should Vettel be able to put the bad luck in the rear view mirror.

With some of the corner cams, the Ferraris were the only two cars shaking their ass through the turn.
Alonso had the last word, but big props to Kimi for getting to grips better with the car and being right there with Alonso. Now if the team can just find some speed in the car!
James Allison got to Ferrari too late to pull miracles out of his rear-end.
However, 2015 could be the year the Scuderia can make a serious challenge for the Championship again(fingers crossed).
Albeit in route to lapping almost the whole field......
Almost lapped BOTH Ferraris.
Rosberg finished 50 some seconds ahead of DR.
Last but not least, congrats to DR! It's good to see him on the podium and hopefully not have it stripped.
The kid has done everything right this year.
Frankly, I didn't think he had it in him.
To be expected.
Ferrari always has been Alonso's team.
Kimi shouldn't be surprised.

He really did drive heroically.
The car looked like sh!t on track.
Somebody needs to just revoke Maldonado's super license and get it over with already.
NO argument from me, but $$$ always rules in these kind of situations.
Just curious, does anyone else fast forward the commercials when they have the PIP of the race? I do. I find it too distracting.
I always skip the PIP stuff.
Anyone know what happened to Massa? He totally went backward and nobody said a word.
Without his Brazilian bankroll, he is outta F1.
